Here are the highlights from Friday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.
– Five weeks ago, a Haverhill man bought a winning $1 million lottery ticket. Earlier this week, police raided Gary L. Bond’s house and found cocaine, marijuana, EBT cards, a machete and brass knuckles. He was charged for cocaine and marijuana possession as well as trafficking.
His wife, Fritzlaine Liautaud, faced the same charges, but posted her and Bond’s bail earlier this week.
Said Callahan: “It’s one thing to get caught, you got caught. You’re a liar, you’re a cheater, you’re stealing from the taxpayers, you’re dealing drugs. But then there’s this indignation. How dare you?”
Continued Callahan: “How is he given an EBT card? You walk in the [welfare] office, and they just say, ‘Here you go’?”
Replied a sarcastic Dennis: “His back hurts, Gerry. He can’t work and provide for his family.”
Said Minihane: “So I can go get one?”
– Governor Deval Patrick said Thursday that he has no intention of succeeding Eric Holder as attorney general. Many have speculated a role for Patrick in the Barack Obama administration, especially since Patrick is going on a trip to Washington, but Patrick continued to deny it.
“Wouldn’t it be a lot fun to hang out with Obama and Patrick?” Minihane asked. “Go play 18 with them?”
Said Callahan: “I was just hoping he’d take the gig and go before the Senate and get out of our lives.”
– A Canadian man unsuccessfully attempted to smuggle 51 live turtles over the Detroit border and into Canada when he taped the reptiles to his body. Kai Xu tried to put the turtles under his sweatpants, but he was caught by agents near the border.
Asked Dennis: “How big were the turtles?”
Replied Minihane: “They’re like those little snapping turtles.”
Said Dennis: “Well, you’ve got to be careful then, if they’re snapping turtles. Like, where you put them in your sweatpants.”
– Robert Kennedy Jr. and new wife Cheryl Hines recently purchased a $5 million home in Malibu, California. The house was bought from award-winning composer David Kurtz.
Callahan didn’t have many nice things to say about Kennedy.
“All you need to know about Robert Kennedy Jr. is he’s been called the dumbest Kennedy,” Callahan said.
